In the coming years, thousands of quay walls will approach the end of their intended fifty-year design lifetime and become part of lifetime extension programmes throughout the world. It is presently unclear how reliable these structures are and whether they are still capable of bearing ship and crane loads. An appropriate assessment of a quay wall’s reliability is essential to safely and responsibly determining its remaining service life. This thesis demonstrates how quay wall reliability can be evaluated and what aspects should be taken into consideration.
